Nice pile of hay. I would expect such a large collection to be the big round bales.

I guess that depends on the machinery they bought, way back when.

those are the big bales right? not the ones that a regular joe can pick up.

I remember going through pensylvania (trashed that word didn't I) and I saw the big "regular" bales for the first time. it messed with my head.

Usually the big bales are round, and the small ones are rectangular...

yea but if the truck was right up to the pile, it would only be 2 maybe 2 1/2 bales high. those aren't the small ones (unless he has the smallest tundra in the world).

I know I couldn't pick one up and tote it around

I guess you can fold the back seat down, and leave the hatch open and you can maybe get one bale in the car, and another strapped to the roof...

I hope that TRD has all the special off-road equipment... else he'll never make it outta there.

Put them along the back edge of the left side, right side and top of the canopy. They "should" be placed every 4 inches on center. But you would end up having a lot of them on the car. So I bet you could double that distance without any major decrease in the effect of the VG's. Getting the air to come off the back of that big boxy *** end in a smooth fashion should help.

Strangely enough, the biggest improvement I have noticed is not so much gas mileage...but rear end stability. My Mustang was generating alot of turbulance and some aerodynamic lift before the VG, because of all the dirty/sloppy/turbulent air flow. The VG's helped alot by making the car "slip: through the air in a more clean fashion and not the rear wheels/*** end of the car are much more stable and it gets more stable with more speed. Instead of less stable with speed.
